"A stunner, an unnerving portrait of a man stripped of civilization's defenses. Ferris's prose is brash, extravagant, and, near the end, chillingly beautiful."
      — The New Yorker
 
"Audacious, risky, and powerfully bleak, with the author's unflinching artistry its saving grace."
       — Kirkus (starred review)
 
"A portrait of a couple locked in an extreme version of a familiar conflict--the desire to stay together versus an inexplicable yearning to walk away."
       — O, The Oprah Magazine
 
"Utterly compelling. . . . Ferris brilliantly channels the suburban angst of Yates and Cheever for the new millenium."
      — Booklist (starred review)

"An astonishing and compelling novel."
     —VeryShortList.com
 
"Accomplished and daring."
      —Tod Goldberg, Los Angeles Times
 
"Spellbinding....The Unnamed unfolds in a hushed, shadowed dimension located somewhere between myth and a David Mamet play."
       — Laura Miller, Salon.com
 
"Arresting, ground-shifting, beautiful and tragic. This is the book a new generation of writers will answer to. No one in America writes like this."
       — Gary Shteyngart, author of Absurdistan and The Russian Debutante's Handbook
